Prior to the net Britain handled Europe,s business via our under sea cable links with America , in days of old when faxes were sent machines were built that sent a clone fax to another number every time a fax was sent ,later models sent a clone by RF transmission with in the fax unit .
!970s = a bug that was put into a phone system was activated when the number was dialled + another digit it then turn every phone on system into a voice transmitter that was sent to an RF unit to be relayed !
So how far do you think they have come from those old days ?

If it's acceptable that allies spy on allies, then let Snowden go! He only disclosed the evidence.

US has had Germany as a kind of colony for 70 years, and so pushes holocaust to justify and prolong

No peace treaty for Germany since the end of World War II even no constitution, the German people and its country is still occupied by the three remaining victorious powers and Germany isn't even a state with its own sovereignty! We Germans are the paymaster for the EU, USA and of course Israel, and it will stay this way for eternity!

Bad Aibling Station outside Munich closed on September 30, 2004 as it was returned to Germany officially. If you in Russia want to be taken seriously you have to stop Cold War style propaganda. People are too smart and they, like me, will check your facts. It is true that the United States spies on Germany, and it is true that Angela Merkel is upset about it. The methodology, however, involves the Prism and wiretaps. here: http://upload.wikime mmons/a/a1/Upstream_ slide_of_the_PRISM_p resentation.jpg
